Made a prediction of the flying time with a theoretical AUW of 10Kg for the Kratos.

Snapshot of the video at 1256g lift, this shows that there is +/- 7,65A running.



7,65A X 8 = 61,2A total

80% of 16000mAh lipo = 12800mAh or 12,8Ah

12,8 61,2 = 0,209 hour

0,209 X 60 = 12,54 minutes total flying time

Seems to me a very nice result

Wow, nice job, really clean build!

I would love to see a video of the quick release system for the arms, if different from the flexa.

Keep the good job coming!

Thanks,

Basicly they are the same, one big plus though we use an extra aluminium clamp on the frame and two on the motor mounts, so no more twisting motors or booms

Detail of our clamp, one halve has a M3 thread and the other half 3mm holes, so the botom halve is permantly fixt on the frame with short screws and with longer screws from the top you fix the booms.

Your quick lock system is really nice, good job!

I've the Allied Drone one on my Cinestar, and yours really seems incredible, amazing!

I'm really thinking on adding the Kratos to my fleet... ;-)
